Notes: Instead of making spice paste, you can use 1/4 cup purchased Thai red curry paste mixed with 2 tablespoons salad oil; stir in a 6- to 8-inch frying pan over medium heat until fragrant, about 5 minutes, then add sugar. You will need about 12 thin wood or metal skewers. If using wood, soak in water at least 30 minutes just before using. Up to 1 day ahead, coat meat with spice mixture and thread onto skewers; wrap airtight and chill.
2 tablespoons chopped palm sugar or firmly packed brown sugar
How to Make It
Cut meat into 3/4-inch chunks.
Mix spice paste and sugar. Coat meat with mixture.
Thread meat equally onto skewers.
Lay skewers on a lightly oiled grill over hot coals or high heat on a gas grill (you can hold your hand at grill level only 2 to 3 seconds) and cook, turning to brown on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
